उत्तर प्रदेश विधान परिषद के चुनाव में विजयी सभी प्रत्याशियों को हार्दिक बधाई!— Yogi Adityanath (@myogiadityanath) February 3, 2023

On the other hand, BJP's Dr. Jai Pal Singh has won the Bareilly-Moradabad block graduate MLC seat. BJP's Babulal Tiwari bloomed lotus from Jhansi-Allahabad teacher's seat. Devendra Pratap Singh of the saffron party has managed to win for the third time in a row from the Gorakhpur-Faizabad segment graduate. Independent candidate Raj Bahadur Chandel has won the Kanpur Shikshak MLC seat. He has defeated his rival by a margin of 1520 votes. Congratulating on this victory, CM Yogi said, 'Hearty congratulations to all the candidates who won the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council elections! This victory of the BJP candidates in the elections to the Upper House of the State Legislature is a symbol of immense public trust in the double engine government led by the respected Prime Minister.'
Let us tell you that in the 2022 assembly elections also, BJP created history by registering victory for the second time in a row. Now again the public has reposed faith in his rule. Significantly, the recent Legislative Council elections of UP have taken place at a time when there is a controversy in the state regarding Ramcharitmanas written by Tulsidas. SP leader Swami Prasad Maurya made a derogatory statement about Ramcharitmanas, after which party president Akhilesh Yadav also supported him and raised questions on the four verses of the holy scripture of Hindus. Now SP has got a crushing defeat in the MLC elections.
